Uppermill Community Action Network News
Supported by the Canal and River Trust
The UCAN team met for late summer drinks
and nibbles (kindly provided by Peter and
Judith) and to say farewell to Phil Smith
from CRT. Phil has helped and supported
the team from inception and UCAN thank
him for his efforts over the last 3 years.
Autumn Tasks
UCAN identified the painting of lock gates
and moorings along the Uppermill stretch of
canal as being a necessary task this year.
Work commenced last month and the team
are now well on the way to finishing this by
the end of autumn. Undeterred by heavy
rain the group also tackled low overhanging
trees, branches and overgrown shrubs to
help to keep the towpath clear.
Saddleworth Hydro Grant
UCAN were extremely pleased to hear that
they have been awarded a grant from
Saddleworth Hydro for the development of
the viaduct
woodland. Thanks to
this grant work will
now be able to
commence over the
winter months.
For anyone interested in helping our next
projects days are as follows:-
